    Does anyone know what where you can get 1911 grip panels that have a camo pattern but are made out of rubber? I found some on Ebay but they are hard polymer.

    Buy black rubber ones you like and then paint them with a paint designed for flexible plastic like Krylon. Just curious why in the world would you want camo colored grips on a 1911?

    You may find that painting rubber grips won't work as well as you hope. If you are wanting rubber Hogue-type grips, I would assume that there is enough flex in the rubber that paint will have a hard time sticking to for any length of time. It would probably work just fine for hard polymer though.

    I just like how the camo looks, but I have black rubber grip panels with the Peirce finger grove add on and I realy like how that feels in the hand. Plus the camo grips make it so no one else can find my gun :neener:!

    So in the woods, in a firefight, they can't shoot it outta your hand right?!?! Good idea :D

    I don't like those Ajax grips above, I don't think much of the colors. But I DO like the digital ACU ones that come with Crimson Trace grips.

    I'm in the process of setting up to put Duracoat ACU pattern on a variety of guns and accessories, but I don't think I'll try it on rubber.
